Jeff Gitterman of Gitterman & Sacks has been named one of FORTUNE Small Business Magazine’s 15 Best Bosses for 2004.

FORTUNE Small Business Magazine’s second annual list of Best Bosses and related stories appear in the October 2004 issue. The publication defines the Best Bosses as “15 outstanding ‘all terrain’ business leaders who are able to motivate employees through a rough patch of continued belt-tightening and also plot new ways to exploit the growth opportunities that are just emerging as the economy warms up.”

“We are thrilled that Jeff has received the honor from FORTUNE Small Business,” said Kathleen Murphy, President of ING Institutional Financial Services. “Jeff and his firm are one of our key distribution partners. ING works in concert with thousands of representatives in small business organizations providing them with support, training and marketing materials to help them succeed in their businesses. Jeff is one of our outstanding reps and truly deserves the honor.”

“To be honest, it just felt great to be nominated. The thought that my employees had the willingness to nominate me was the best part,” said Jeff Gitterman, co-founder of Gitterman & Sacks, LLC.

Process of Selection

FORTUNE Small Business collaborated with Winning Workplaces, a non-profit organization that helps small businesses adopt successful workplace practices. Together, they identified 210 nominees, who were asked about employee tenure, benefits, management challenges and metrics for measuring success. From that list, FORTUNE Small Business and Winning Workplaces chose 35 finalists, who answered a second set of questions about employee training, financial incentives and information sharing. A panel of judges then evaluated the finalists.
